Are you looking to create your own private practice, but you are not sure how to start?

Is it time to do something more than think about it? Time to look at actually making it happen, and launching into the new decade with the business that you've always wanted for yourself?

What if you could get this plan off the ground with the support and guidance of someone who knows what is involved, and who has helped hundreds of others make their dreams a reality too?

Would that appeal to you?

And what if you could have that help at your fingertips, in a format that meant that you could work on it at your own pace, building your confidence and creating a business built on a firm foundation, all from the comfort of your home.

You know that you've waited long enough to take this step.

It's time to grab the support that will help you reach your goals and create your new practice.

It's time to get some expert back-up that will help you make your business dream a reality sooner, rather than later.

That's where this programme will help.

My "Getting Started In Your Own Private Practice" online coaching programme is designed to help get your practice up and running, building it into the practice you visualised when you first began thinking about working for yourself! 

Today, the frustrations holding you back can end and you can make a decision that transforms your working life forever.

(And there is even a Money-Back guarantee for your peace of mind ... see below).

"Attending (Colin's) workshop on setting up in private practice was the best money I ever spent on CPD. I came away from it feeling validated that I was already aware of or doing some things and learning where I might fall short and needed to do things differently. I also gained the confidence I needed to be able to make the jump off the mountain cliff. Since that workshop, my private practice has taken off spectacularly, thanks mainly due to what I learned. Colin is a very patient person with a lovely, quietly spoken manner, but is enthusiastic and energetic about helping others. He is always accessible and responds to questions remarkably quickly. I would recommend him to anyone thinking about going into private practice, whether full or part-time. Now, he needs to write a book!”
(Note from Colin: I've done that, and it's included in this package!)

Meet Your Coach, Colin

I'm Dr Colin Clerkin, a clinical psychologist and business coach, with 25 years experience, first in the UK's NHS, and, for the past 15 years+, in my own full-time private practice, based in North West England.

I've built up my therapy practice from scratch and now employ psychologists and associate therapists to provide wide-ranging services, both privately and through NHS contracts.

Since 2007, I have also been running workshops on Private Practice and coaching a wide range of therapy professionals and coaches, like you, on their practice development.

I've guided hundreds of therapists in making their private practice dreams a reality.

I'd love to be able to do the same for you, too.

"I would highly recommend anyone starting out in private practice to use Colin's 'Getting Started' programme.  It is both inspiring and supportive.  Colin is an excellent and generous coach and wonderful role model for how to run a successful business.  The 'Getting Started' programme is set up it in a way that identifies and then develops each individual’s aspirations and values. I now have a much clearer idea of what I want my business to look like and the steps needed to achieve and maintain this. It is well worth the money and the effort involved!"

""Having worked in the NHS for a number of years, I decided to start doing some private practice. Colin was so helpful – he helped me to stay focussed, develop practical strategies to develop a referral base as well doing some financial planning. Colin was a great coach, combining the support I needed with useful advice to build my practice. Having time booked in every month also helped to keep me on track. I would very highly recommend Colin’s coaching programme" "
